With roasted balsamic root vegetables, spicy roasted chickpeas and stuffed roasted peppers being just several of the roasted recipes on our blog, I think it is safe to say that roasting is one of Festival's Dietitians’ favorite ways to enjoy vegetables. Roasting vegetables in a hot oven is a fantastic way to bring out natural sweetness while cooking them to perfection. With a slightly crunchy, caramelized outside and tender, flavor-filled inside, these roasted green beans & potatoes will be gone before you can say “Veggies!”
